[04/10/2011] Oncology patients generally need fast, coordinated help over a longer period of time – stress and strains that arise from frequent visits to doctors and hospitals should preferably be avoided. That’s why the Asklepios Kliniken (clinics) in Hamburg, Germany, break new ground with their “Future Hospital“ program.Tumor Conference: “All tumor conference participants have access to the same data“ - Read more

Women: Breast Cancer Patients with BRCA Gene Diagnosed Earlier

[24/08/2011] University of Houston (UH) researchers have their sights set on developing possible treatments for breast and colon cancer. In two separate, yet related, studies professor Cecilia Williams and her team at the Center for Nuclear Receptors and Cell Signaling (CNRCS) explored the role of estrogen hormones in potentially treating and preventing these cancers.Studies: Treatments for Breast and Colon Cancers - Read more

Identified: Regulator of Aggressive Breast Cancer

[04/07/2011] Researchers at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) have identified an enzyme that appears to be a significant regulator of breast cancer development. Called PTPN23, the enzyme is a member of a family called protein tyrosine phosphatases, or PTPs, that plays a fundamental role in switching cell signaling on and off.Identified: Regulator of Aggressive Breast Cancer - Read more
